Designing $82 million in improvements for the student athletes at Camp Randall Stadium

Alongside Berners-Schober & Associates, our team was challenged to design the new Student-Athlete Performance Center (SAPC) to elevate the University of Wisconsin's standing as one of the finest intercollegiate athletics programs in the country. The project was complex--a multi-phased renovation-expansion to be integrated with existing facilities without disrupting the scheduling of varsity practices or football games.

Following an intensive site analysis, our solution would incorporate new training facilities, locker rooms, and other athlete-support facilities within a compelling addition to Camp Randall Stadium and renovated space under the nearby indoor varsity training field house, known as the McClain Center. Additionally, the project also includes a new tunnel to the stadium floor for the football team, as well as a scoreboard, artificial turf, and a translucent roof for the McClain Center.

New academic classrooms, labs, and faculty offices were developed behind a curved, three-story addition to Camp Randall. Rendered in brick, stone, and steel, with an arcaded façade modeled after a classic arena, the academic center communicates the primary importance of learning to students and parents.
